ConneXions

The Cana­di­an New Music Net­work is thrilled to launch a new MENTORSHIP PROGRAM to sup­port and guide artists and arts work­ers in the real­iza­tion of projects relat­ed to new cre­ative music and sound. CNMN brings togeth­er all those who are inter­est­ed in cre­ative music and sound prac­tices. This includes per­form­ers, com­posers and cre­ators as well as pre­sen­ters, pro­duc­ers, cura­tors, edu­ca­tors and arts work­ers. Any­one who had a new or exist­ing project that could ben­e­fit from the guid­ance of an expe­ri­enced men­tor was wel­come to apply. In our 2020 pilot ver­sion, we are pleased to sup­port the fol­low­ing applicants:

Adri­an Aven­dano
Matthew Beck­er
Car­men Braden
Edward Enman
Kim Far­ris-Man­ning
Émi­lie Fortin
India Gai­ley
Rebec­ca Gray
Emi­ly Hiem­stra
Guil­laume Jab­bour
Justin Massey
Jes­si­ca McMann
Olivia Shortt
Caitlin Smith
There­sa Thordarson

Depend­ing on the nature of the project, CNMN is offer­ing one to four ses­sions with a men­tor. We will be high­light­ing men­tor­ship projects on CNMN’s social media, so stay tuned. This ini­tia­tive is about mak­ing con­nec­tions between the mem­bers of our com­mu­ni­ty and shar­ing knowl­edge first — the out­come of the con­nec­tion is secondary.

Men­tors for this round of appli­cants include:

Parmela Attari­wala
Ruby Kato Attwood
Andrew Bal­four
Anne Bourne
Amy Bran­don
Raven Cha­con

Gabriel Dhar­moo
Eve Egoy­an
